They arrived from Poland, Russia, Ukraine, the Czech Republic, France, Holland and Belgium – forced laborers deployed to churn out supplies for the battlefront and the German home front during the Second World War. They toiled in munitions factories, produced household goods or worked in agriculture. There were some 13 million of these forced laborers working for the Third Reich during that period. They were brought in mostly from the countries occupied by the German army or from the German protectorates. For most, the experience changed their lives forever. This groundbreaking documentary, the first to examine the forced laborers’ post-war fates, seeks to answer the question of how their lives were affected by this experience. What happened to the Ukrainian, the Pole and the Czech? Three lives which could not be more different yet have one thing in common – forced labor in Nazi Germany.
